Former doctor enters guilty plea


A former medical doctor, who nearly two decades ago lost his license in Ohio, pleaded guilty in federal court Thursday to charges associated with conducting physical exams on potential workers-compensation claimants.

James E. Mann, 78, of Rossford, pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in Toledo to three counts of mail fraud. He admitted that although no longer licensed, he conducted physical evaluations and mailed reports to a Cleveland attorney, which resulted in $91,482.81 in benefit payouts to three federal claimants.

Per the plea agreement signed March 21 and read in court Thursday, Mann will be required to pay back the more than $91,000 in restitution.
